“Padel is growing rapidly in France and we look forward to showcasing our sport in its best light to new audiences in this spectacular venue as well as viewers around the world, as part of this multi-year deal.
“The announcement and signing of the memorandum of understanding illustrate the mobilisation of the FFT for padel in France, under the aegis of the FIP internationally and with the support of Premier Padel, whose strategy, which is based on a professional approach, aims to roll out the circuit to new premier venues around the world and deliver a premium experience for players and fans alike.”
